Each event will be 2 hours long, and will consist of 60 people each, for a total of 9 events, including 7 straight events, and 2 LGBT events.
The show also grew in size with a larger group of vendors offering a lot more comics, trades, and graphic novels than last year.
The speed dating events will take place on Oct 9th-11th.
Over 500 people are expected to take part in the events.
Images from last year's New York Comic Con: The founders of NY Minute Dating have purchased Speed Date from Speed Date USA with the goal to bring its style of speed dating events to Philly.
Speed Date was launched circa 2007 by a local organizer who amassed a mailing list of thousands of singles from the Philadelphia area.
